When Denver Post photographer Craig F. Walker won the Pulitzer Prize for feature photography on Monday, his boss managed to sneak his subject, Scott Ostrom, into the newsroom for the announcement. But Ostrom had something to celebrate, as well: The Iraq war vet had just learned that the Department of Veterans Affairs finally officially recognized his PTSD, which was at the center of Walker's award-winning project, called "Welcome Home."

"This story has definitely saved at least one guy's life so far," Ostrom says.
